I was hiking up Whistler mountain last summer to see the beautiful view but, I turned back down the trail because of rude a smoking couple. People should have better manners and try to smoke away from nonsmokers. Second hand smoking is annoying and bad for your health. People may not have noticed this but, smokers are taking money from the nation. Cigarette smokers are bad for nonsmokers. Second hand smoke is very annoying, their is no way it can be upright. It smells disgusting and people canít stand the odor. When people are in a smoking environment the stench will stick to clothes and hair. Some people are allergic to the exhaust and makes their eyes water and throut hurt. The people who smoke in front of others donít even seem to concern about the other people around him or her. Even if a smoker is not smoking being around that person can be irritating because they still stink. The smell of smoke is horrible and I could never live with someone that smokes. Cigarette smoke is not only annoying it also damages the heart and lungs and is killing about 3000 Canadians per year. If some one gets cancer in the lungs that person is most likely to pass away because there is no cure for the lung cancer right now. If you are living with a smoker you have a twenty five percent chance of dying from a heart attack. It even hurts children by giving them bronchitis, asthma and ear aches. There are about 45 gasses, liquids and metals that cause cancer in the smog. Smoking costs a lot of money for the people in Canada. It costs the Canadian economy roughly three hundred and fifty dollars for each Canadian. Most of these costs come from treating diseases caused by tobacco and from the loss when workers are too ill and cannot contribute to economic activity. The next time a smoker is getting in your way tell him or her to smoke some where else or if that canít be done just go to another area. It is smart to stay away from the fumes of cigarettes because it can not only make you smell better it can also save your life.
